2 cups coarsely chopped peaches plus 1 pitted peach cut into 8 wedges
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 6 lemons)
4 cups ice
Combine 4 cups water, chopped peaches and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes.
Place mixture in a blender and let stand 20 minutes to cool. Place lid on blender, removing center piece to let steam escape. Place a clean towel over blender lid to avoid splatters, and blend until smooth. Refrigerate at least 3 hours.
Press peach mixture through a sieve, reserving liquid and discarding solids. Stir in lemon juice. Place 1/2 cup ice in each of 8 glasses. Pour about 2/3 cup peach mixture into each glass and garnish with a peach wedge. Makes 8 servings.
